One of the best sets of three songs to open an album I have heard in a long time.

Wide Awake is unlike anything the band has done before. It is very political, but is also funny and clever too. It’s my favorite post-punk album of the year, (sorry IDLES) and possibly my favorite album of the year in general.

Fav tracks: Total Football, Before the Water Gets Too High, Mardi Gras Beads, Almost Had to Start a Fight, Extinction, Wide Awake, Death Will Bring Change, and Tenderness

Weakest: Back to Earth

For all the influences Parquet Courts wear proudly on their sleeves here (and why shouldn't they?), they never sound anything but earnest, clever, and willing to have fun in the throws of all the deep anxieties at this album's core. Some brilliant tracks here - and the band's best, most focused album.

It's good to see that they're gaining some recognition now but c'mon people, check Parquet Courts's previous stuff. Human Performance is way better than this one. Still a very good album with some nice tracks.

I'm blown away. I never expected to like a post-punk record this much. Those basslines oh sweet Jesus.

Definitely a quality consistent album! Very good - best I've heard from them. They go away from the punk sound a bit more and branch out into a few different styles. I don't know what's with the track ratings here it's about the inverse of my opinion.

Total Football, Before the Water Gets too High, Back to Earth, and Death Will Bring Change are the highlights here in my opinion.

I'm a NON-punk fan and I do appreciate how enjoyable this is and how even though there's a decent amount of shades of early 80's punk it's not overwhelming and something melodic will come in and honestly some of the tracks here and guitar work - even on the punk songs - is quite addictive.

Great album, maybe a few listens more I bump it up to an 8.

This will easily be one of my albums of the year if not THE album of the year. Really catchy tunes and some really clever lyrical work here. The production here is also of exceptional quality.

Highlight - the baseline intro to Violence and this track in general.

Fav tracks - Violence, Total Football, Before the Water Gets Too High, Back to Earth, Wide Awake, Death Will Bring Change, Tenderness

Weakest track (but still good) - NYC Observation

9/10 could be higher on repeat listens

Just a solid punk record. Been a while since I've heard one so this was very much welcome.
